Hot air ballooning in Gauteng

Are you interested in a hot air balloon flight? You can enjoy this from R1850 per person sharing at the Cradle of Humankind, and from R2100 per person sharing at the Hartbeespoort Dam. To check availability, fill in the following form (if you're having troubles, email cheapflights@southafrica.to):

You experience total peace and tranquillity over some of the most splendid scenery our country has to offer, with nothing to disturb the peace but the occasional hiss of the burners above you.

Who Can Fly?

There are no age restrictions as to who can fly, however, passengers must be at least 1.2m tall (enough to see over the edge of the basket), climb in and out of the basket unaided, be able to stand for the duration of the flight and be able to crouch during the landing. We recommend that pregnant woman do not fly. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Please let us know if anyone has any conditions such as asthma or diabetes, or is afraid of heights.

What to Wear

You should wear whatever you feel most comfortable in. It is advisable to dress in layers as it can get quite chilly on the launch site but once up in the air you will be surprised at how warm it is, especially under the burners. Casual clothing and flat shoes are ideal, and natural fibres are preferable to synthetic fabrics. Do not wear nylon. You may want to wear a hat to shield your head from the heat of the burners. Gloves, scarves and beanies are recommended during winter. Don’t forget to bring your camera and binoculars.
